On Tuesday night, Ryan, some friends, and I joined thousands of people to cheer, clap, and encourage Sarah Palin to “keep on!”
Ryan and I highly support McCain and Palin in this election even though we don’t agree with everything that they say or do (we couldn’t expect to); nor do we think that they are perfect (we couldn’t expect them to be).
But when it comes to being a light that glorifies God, we think that we see the flickers of this desire in them; and, of the possible candidates, we think that we would be most free and most encouraged to shine for Him under their office.
As you know, there is much to pray about.Â Today, we will join Shirley Dobson and the National Day of Prayer to talk to God about our country and our hearts. Join the nation in prayer from 12 – 12:30 today. I appreciate Billy Graham’s recent prayer about this election:
‘Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to
seek your direction and guidance.Â We know Your Word says, ‘Woe to those who
call evil good,’ but that is exactly what we have done.Â We have lost our
spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.Â We have exploited the poor and
called it the lottery.Â We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.Â We
have killed our unborn and called it choice.Â We have shot abortionists and
called it justifiable.Â We have neglected to discipline our children and called
it building self esteem.Â We have abused power and called it politics.Â We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.Â We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.Â We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free.
